Webinar: The Swedish Hydrogen Strategy - Where does the Industry stand?

Politicians, the industry and R&D funders all seem to agree on that hydrogen will radically influence the energy system of the future. What national measures are required from the manufacturing industry ? What strategies do the companies have? And is Sweden's steel and iron industry facing a revolutionary shift?

The German-Swedish Chamber of Commerce invites you to a webinar where these issues are in focus. We begin with a presentation by Svante Axelsson, who has been commissioned by the Swedish Government to produce a proposal for a Swedish hydrogen strategy. This is followed by a discussion between company representatives. The purpose is to provide an insight into what the Swedish strategy concretely means. We will also discuss how German and Swedish companies can work together in order to drive development in hydrogen technology.

For whom
The webinar is held in English. It is directed towards decision makers in German and Swedish companies in the manufacturing industry, the energy sector, authorities, politicians and actors in research and development. It is free of charge.
